Recipe by sandhillgirl

My mother gave this recipe to me, though I have tweaked it a bit. You would think it was heavy, due to the pumpkin and heavy spices, but on the contrary, it is light (if you leave out the raisins and nuts). I have converted many a "pumpkin hater", including myself with this culinary delight. Makes great muffins or cupcakes for "on the go".
